It's easy to forget that, three weeks ago today, the NHL still didn't have a collective bargaining agreement.
Much has happened since then, of course, and teams are still scrambling to get into a normal routine.
That includes travel-related issues, as the Penguins learned while making arrangements for their current trip.
They initially were scheduled to practice today in Winnipeg, where the Jets beat them, 4-2, Friday night, but that changed a few days later.
Their current itinerary calls for them to be flying out of Winnipeg right about now, but not getting on the ice until late afternoon, well after they've arrived in Ottawa.
The Penguins, like most teams, generally leave a city immediately after playing there, but have tentative plans to stay overnight in a lot of places and practice there the following morning before moving on.
That likely is a concession to the NHL's compressed schedule, an attempt to maximize the rest players get after games.
